Cache No. 804 – Canal Overflow

September 6th 2010 – Canal Overflow GC2EEDD – cache #804
Another new cache, by another relatively new cacher. This one is within the distance I can get to at lunchtime from work, so when I got the email notification of it’s placing I popped out the next day to find it.

I parked the car, walked down the path to the canal and got almost to the cache without seeing anyone, then just as I came in sight of the canal overflow I came across a cyclist, a couple out for a walk, a man walking his dog and a boat chugging down the canal… I had to walk past, hang around, have a pretend phone conversation, walk back to the cache, hang around a bit more until the coast was clear and I could make a grab for the cache, which was easy enough to find being on a ledge under the towpath bridge where it crosses the overflow.
Though apparently it’s been moved since I found it as it kept ending up on the floor, whether by wind blowing it off or rodents knocking it off no-one has said (I’d go for rodents)
